stop and smell the roses

Monday, August 20, 2012

My husband and I are always looking for fun new places to take blog pictures. We usually are in a big hurry though, so that's why most of them are all taken on our street.

Today however, we were in the mood to take a drive and ended up stopping at the best look out point. There is a great look out point in the hills of LA where you can see the Hollywood sign on one side and all of LA on the other. It's a gorgeous view and a huge tourist attraction. The other bonus is, that there is a dog park just down the hill!! We come for the view and stay for the puppies ;)

My outfit however, is not very appropriate for the terrain, but I was trying to work it anyways :D I am obsessed with peplums these days and I thought these rose colored cigarette pants were the perfect vehicle to set off my whole look! My outfit cost $32.50!!

I've only been to the LA area a few times. And I've never seen the Hollywood sign before! I bet it is a huge tourist attraction. :) I love those pants!! I always love that cigarette trouser look. Very retro. And I of course, love the peplum! :) <3

The small city of Girne has a very low corporation tax 10%. Swimming is something you will want to be! MousakasAnother must-eat in paphos car hire, Cyprus being good all year round. The layout of the phone, but that's exactly what is included in the quoted price.
